Flash Back Friday

Five years ago on general conference weekend I flew out to Washington to visit Nathan. It was that weekend we decided we wanted to get married.

 Outside of the Portland temple.

After being teased by Nathan's siblings that we needed to concentrate on conference, we sent this picture to his family showing them what we did during conference.

We didn't get engaged for another month, but it was a pretty great weekend.

I know, I's about time!

I have a million reasons why I have not updated lately. We have had visitors and then some more visitors and then we went and babysat our Bishop's kids for two weeks.  

The real reason is that I HATE my computer. it has seen better days and it takes forever to do anything on it.

With that said, here are some updates! We are happy and doing well. Sorry for the delay!


Clark and Chrisitie's visit

Clark, Christie, Hannah, Grace, Peter and Brooke came next to visit our house. We played a lot of games and had a great time. The moment those kids walked in to the door Molly attacked them. I was really happy to see how much she loves her cousins. She definatley plays differently with them then her friends.

Brooke was nice enough to let Molly hold her when she woke up from a nap.

Molly and I joined C & C for a trip to Nauvoo. We had an amazing time. I had been their when I was a little girl, but I really loved learning about the early saints and the sacrifices they had to make.

These kids were so good with Molly. She loved having her cousins with her

We got to play lots of pioneer games and Molly spent a lot of time playing in this little cabin.

One of the best parts of the whole visit for Molly was having sleep overs in her room. (btw: I did not paint those walls. There were little boys that lived here before us!)

We love our nieces and Nephews and we were so happy they came to visit. They are an amazing family.

Baby Emma

While Grana and Tibu were here, my dear friend Melanie had her little girl. Baby Emma has a great birth story that you might want to read! Molly LOVES babies and was so excited when Melanie let her hold Emma!

Grana and Tibu come for a visit!

We loved having Grana and Tibu come visit us. Molly really enjoyed having two people that just wanted to play with her.

It's almost a tradition that we throw rocks with Grana and Tibu.  Grana, Sarah and Molly found a great little stream to throw rocks in, so we had to come back again with Tibu then next day.

We got to go to Fair Oaks farm and the adults had a great time. Molly was in a "special" mood that started because she was afraid of having the little paper bracelet put on her wrist. She never really recovered, but we had a few happy moments!

Here are a few of those moments.

There were a lot of fun things to do there and Molly really loved seeing a baby calf being born.

Molly really misses them. We are so glad they were able to come visit.
